Procedural Fluency One-Step Equations
A One-step Equations tile has been added to Procedural Fluency. These topics are made available to grades 6-8 and include:
Teachers can now build a variety of problems to help increase student proficiency.
Conceptual Understanding Tools
The Conceptual Understanding corner of our platform has undergone a tremendous renovation! You’ll find that many of these applications have a fresh look and larger grids, making them even better for projecting onto the board for a class activity. Now you can change the number of rows and columns in the grid (from 5x5 to 20x20), as well as the cell size and font size. Some tools feature new settings, as well, such as the ability to toggle the visibility of a number’s multiples in the multiples matrix (See image below).
